Crottin de Champcol
 

Crottin de Champcol

$91.80

There are so many uses for this versatile goats milk cheese It is as close as you are going to get to an AOC crottin de Chavignol in the U.S. Pascal Jacquin put a lot of effort into this cheese so that it can be enjoyed from young, for salads and crostini, to old, for grating. Crottin de Champcol is made in the Loire around Sancerre and Berry, and is named for the tiny village of Champcol. Crottin in French means horse or mule dung. Not a particularly appetizing description even if it is due to the shape, not the taste of the cheese, but nonetheless a rich and flavorful cheese. Crottin Jacquin are produced in Berry, near Cher. After 2 weeks of affinage the rind begins to take on the molds that define this cheese and after 4 months it will be gratable and still very tasty. With age, the rind thickens with mold while the interior begins to transform from the outside in. Distinct age layers are seen throughout this process. The flavor will be complex, grassy and nutty with a great salty balance. The rind, except when young, should always have mottled blue, white and gray mold. For serving, simply dust off the excess and then dig in. They may be ugly but they are certainly worth trying

Comte 10 lb cut, 1/8 Wheels
 

Comte 10 lb cut, 1/8 Wheels

$225.52

This big wheel of cheese is also known as Gruyere de Comte or French Gruyere. Originally, Gruyere was neither neither Swiss nor French. The root of the word stems from Charlemagnes reign, inclusive of France, Switzerland and parts of Germany, where the forests were termed gruyres. Wood from those forests fired the kettles for the cheese makers as they traded cheese for firewood. Comte is aged 6 months to a year, whereas Swiss Gruyere is sometimes only aged for 3 months. It takes as many as 530 liters of milk, about the daily production of 30 cows, to make 1 Comte, weighing approximately 80 pounds. The cheese is regularly wiped and rubbed with brine to encourage the development of the rind mold. The eyes of the Comte are the result of proper affinage and should be the size of a pea to a small cherry. If affinage is prolonged at too low of a temperature, the result will be that no eyes form. The AOC designated regions include the Franche-Comte, eastern Burgundy, parts of Lorraine, Champagne and the Rhone-Alps. Comte is highly controlled for quality and 5 of the cheeses fail to meet AOC standards. The flavor is complex, nutty and caramelized with a lingering but not sharp flavor.

Cotija is commonly used to add a lively garnish to common dishes: simply sprinkle on top of refried beans, salads, chili or lasagna. In Mexico, it is also widely used to enhance the flavor of many savory dishes by mixing directly into the casserole or recipe. In the U.S. it is increasingly popular on pasta. See for yourself how much zestier any pasta or even simple macaroni and cheese will taste with a sprinkle of Cotija. It is typically shredded onto cooked foods, also in salads and with fruit.p Shown here with our a hrefhttp://www. cheesesupply.com/product info. php/products id/400ufont color3366CC Hand Grater/a/u/font.
